A tale of two countries
Date created : Latest update :
It's the war of the meetings in today's papers - with just 6 days to go before the first round of the election, both Nicolas Sarkozy and François Hollande held major open-air rallies yesterday.
Le Parisien calls the result of yesterday's war of meetings a dead heat - at least in terms of numbers - while Le Figaro clearly proclaims the victory of its champion Nicolas Sarkozy.
Liberation is equally partisan - they say the rally yesterday can't hide the cracks in the president's re-election campaign.
